The Government announced this afternoon that anyone returning to England from Italy, San Marino or Vatican City will need to quarantine for 14 days.
The quarantine requirement will be come into force from 4am on SUNDAY morning. Note that the cut-off date has moved to Sunday from Saturday, presumably in an attempt to make it easier for people to return home on their existing flight bookings.
Crete has been removed from the quarantine list. This follows the removal of Lesvos, Santorini, Serifos and Zakynthos last week. Mykonos is still on the quarantine list.
Italy, San Marino and Vatican City will presumably soon be removed from the list of countries exempt from the Foreign Office ‘do not travel’ list (click here). This is usually the trigger for being able to abandon your holiday plans and make a successful travel insurance claim.
The official ‘travel corridor’ list is on this page of the Government website.
